Poland looking to play better in key moments

Poland hopes to play a better game tomorrow

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 4, 2011 – After a tough loss on Saturday, Poland will face nine-time FIVB World League champions Brazil again on Sunday with their main goal being to play better in the key moments.

In Saturday’s match, the Polish team had the lead up to the middle of the first and second sets, but the experienced Brazilians changed gear and emerged the stronger team.

“Tomorrow we will have to play in the same way that we did today and try to do better in the key moments,” Polish captain Michal Bakiewicz said.   

The Brazilians are expecting an even tougher game on Sunday, according to wing spiker Giba.

“They will come out with less pressure and with a strong determination to win,” he commented. “We need to be more focused at the beginning of the match.”

Giba also praised Brazil libero Serginho: “It is easy to play by his side. He is the Pele of his position. Also, he brings an energy that is fantastic for the squad.”

The two teams will meet again on Sunday at 15:00 GMT in Rio de Janeiro.
